2023 Reindeer Run
This race is for the kiddies! County's Barbecue holds this race every December at Country’s On Broad, the same weekend as the Christmas Parade (race starts at nine with parade at ten). It’s the perfect holiday outing: a brisk one-mile, kids-only run through downtown, followed by the parade, and topped off with such festivities as a visit from Santa, free hot dogs to runners, free cotton candy, free popcorn, amusements, and an awards ceremony. Awards are as follows: 1st, 2nd and 3rd for boys and girls in class categories (Pre-K), (Kindergarten 1st, 2nd grades), (3rd, 4th, 5th grades), (6th, 7th, 8th grades). In addition there is an overall first place for girls and boys. The school with the most kids running receives a huge trophy and free catering from Country’s.
This year all the funds raised benefited kids through the Fort Moore Santa's Castle.
